- ... This study evaluates the implementation of a new process: spray freeze drying (SFD), to produce dry micro-capsules of Lactobacillus paracasei with high viability. The study concentrated on determining the survival of the cells, encapsulated in a matrix of maltodextrin and trehalose. SFD was compared with the conventional bulk freeze drying (BFD). Overall it was shown that SFD is a successful metho ...
